This is a beautiful piece in an unusual design.
Made in the 1940's from light brown felt, it is labelled New York Creation a Helen Hale Original. It features a close fitting crown with no front brim and a wide brim heading out to points on either side and the piece is trimmed with dark brown grosgrain ribbon tied into a bow in the back.
This front brimless design isn't a style you often come across. The piece could technically be worn back to front to give a more recognised style of the time, you'd just need to tack the grosgrain backwards so it doesn't hang in your eyes!
Labelled as a 22" head and it is only meant to sit on the back portion of your head, the actual inner measures 20.5"
Front to back 8"
Deepest point on the crown 3.5"
Very good, looks to have been little worn and no points to note.
